When asked whether he had seen the controversial movie or not, he said that it was not required. Rupani's Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar, however, said that he would wait and watch for the censor board decision on the movie.

A notification banning the film's release was issued by the information and broadcasting department of the state.

The group's president, Mahendrasinh Jadeja says that they believe that it will have a great community impact.

Several organizations across the country have been opposing the release of the movie, whose release has been deferred.

The makers are yet to secure a censor certificate in India, where Chief Ministers of at least four states have taken a stand against the release of the historical drama.

The Shree Rajput Karni Sena on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, even though remain silent on this big issue Padmavati row, must have had a role to play in the delay of its release date from December 1. The Rajput community claims that the makers of the movie have mispresented the facts in the movie. The Central Board of Film Certification has not yet certified the movie and the apex court could not inject a statutory body from doing its duty.

On the other hand, Britain censor board has given certification to the film but Bhansali has not allowed the distributors to release the film there before Indian time.

The Shri Rajput Karni Sena, a group based in the north Indian state of Rajasthan and representing the powerful upper-caste Rajput warrior clan, was angered by the film being cleared for screening in Britain.

As yet it is still unclear when "Padmavati" earlier scheduled to be released on December 1 will be released. The statement of the complainant would be recorded on Friday.

The Gujarat government today banned the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali film "Padmavati", which is mired in a massive controversy.
